yup, its real, a double pale ale as they call it, and maybe the best beer i have had from the acclaimed three floyds. this stuff is magic, rich in grain base without ever being sweet. almost has the base of an esb, a huge one, but its in that range. the point here though is the hops, and its really hoppy. in the smell i am thinking simcoe, its so bitter smelling, green and leafy and crystalline, like the sticky dankest bud, where the fingers get all stuck like super glue. the nose is the hop equivalent of trimming blue dream plants, no joke. the flavor is less of that, more refined aggression if you will. the hops are woody here, more centennial like fundamentally, but so overdosed as to not be recognizable as their normal selves. the malt does in fact provide a cool balance to all the hops, which was unsuspected. it almost seems light for a second in the middle there, where the hops are more fruity than anything and the grain is at its fullest, but the bitterness returns to thrash the palate in the finish, its really intensely flavored stuff, but well put together. i have gone back and forth on whether or not the hype around this brewery is fairly founded, and this may have tipped me into thinking it is. really unique and enormous beer.
